A loan fee of $20 per month, payable in advance, is required (no loan fee is required for Library materials).

To borrow Guild property, contact the Property Chair (see Contact Us ) prior to the meeting for delivery at the meeting site; otherwise arrangements will need to be made for you to pick up the equipment.

The Guild has an extensive collection of fiber-related books, monographs, magazines, periodicals, video tapes and DVDs available for loan to Guild members. New acquisitions are made regularly to enhance our collection.  Some of the books, monographs, videos and DVDs currently available for loan to members can be found by clicking the LibraryThing link here.
